Managing and Motivating Students Online: Session Highlights

In this online workshop, we’ll explore best practices for managing and motivating students online.

In traditional classrooms, we often rely on external motivators to get the most from our students. But when teaching online, many of the punishments and rewards we relied on are no longer available.

To improve behavior and achievement when teaching online, we must focus on intrinsic motivation and relationships

PRESTO Online Classroom Management Strategies

PRESTO is a system for classroom management that builds on traditional strategies to encourage student-centered learning.

We look at the six ways to manage and motivate your students: Punishments, Rewards, Encouragement, Support, Trust, and Ownership. And we’ll show you how to support your students through each of these stages.

You’ll leave the session with practical strategies and resources to help you help your students take ownership of their learning.
